Blog: Summer and the stinging pests

Delta BC

Stinging pests come in a variety of shapes and sizes that span numerous insect species. While the main issue is a stinger - body types, colours, and legs vary usually between insects such as bees, hornets and wasps. These pests make problems for you or your family and monitoring them begins with correct proof of identity. As summer approaches, the hot weather brings everyone outside, including stinging insects. While the sting from wasps, bees, hornets, or yellow jackets may hurt, they can also cause more serious health issues like painful swelling, infections, sickness, and in rare cases even death. So you need to know where their breeding places are and remove them. Stinging insects such as bees, wasps, yellow jackets and hornets use their stings to subdue prey, primarily insects and spiders and to defend themselves and their nests.
